Forum: feature_films Subject: Vincent of Suburbia

A couple of years back, I dumped my VHS-collection in that collection there was one film I really regret trowing away. This picture was called "VINCENT OF SUBURBIA" from somewere in the mid-seventies, I taped it from Tv in 1996. I've tried to find the film on a lot of places but saidly no results, so now I try it here. If someone knows the copyright status of this picture or if someone owns a copy of it. Can they inform me. It's a film in which Vincent Van Gogh has on the end of his life some sort of outerbody experience's that bring him to the 70's (current times than) were he is valued for his work, only to wake up in his normal poor artist life. The contrast between being grand on the one moment and being forgetten the next, leads him to do strange things. If you own a copy please react.

What country was the film from? If it was American I might be able to get info on whether it's copyrighted or not. Are you sure of the title? The only google result for a film called "Vincent of Suburbia" is this thread itself.

I only know it under that name, maybe it chaged it's name with the film release. I think if it wasn't American. It could been German, Dutch, French (doubtfull), English or Scandinavian. I remember some of the names in the exit credits sounding a little Germanic, what could make it foreign and could make the title harder to find. I also noticed it was made with a low budget, the greatest thing about the film was the acting by the leading man (I believe his name was DAVON SLOYER). It could be great if you could find it, it would be a great contribution to this list.

If it was made in a country like england or germany then it would still be under copyright. That's the bad news, The good news is that copyright for films in those countries only lasts 50 years. Also, sometimes the copyright for certain films are abandoned, for example "I Married Joan" is technically still under copyright but appears on many budget DVDs since it's copyright was abandoned.

He Robin_1990, Do you maybe know something about the Dutch copyright-laws for films? I've tried too look them up (on Dutch and English languege site's) but I never got a clear answer. Maybe it helps knowing that Holland falls under the convention of Bern and that all films are funded by the goverment (saidly enough). Maybe you know anything about it??

Sorry I don't know much about dutch copyright laws, Since I personally can't stand that country ever since they started erasing the mastertapes of 80's TV shows.
